The GAA has confirmed the dates for this year's All-Ireland football and hurling championship finals, with both scheduled to take place the week before Christmas.

The roadmap for the 2020 All-Ireland Championships has been finalised, with the football championship set to contain a straight knockout format for the first time since 2000. The final is due to take place on Saturday, December 19, two weeks after the semi-finals, which will be contested as follows:

  • Munster winner v Connacht winner
  • Leinster winner v Ulster winner

Meanwhile, the hurling championship will see a straight knockout format during the provinces stage with a two-round backdoor system. The All-Ireland Hurling Final will take place on Sunday, December 13.
